How do I start a career in IxD? (already have bachelor's, but not in design)

Hi IxDAers,

What would you recommend for someone interested in getting started with interaction design, but who already has their bachelor's?

My plan was to make a website and gradually fill it through designing my own projects (or volunteering if I can find something nearby), but first I wanted to know if there was a better way of going about this.

If it's relevant, I have degrees in Cognitive Science and Studio Art, can teach myself programming languages, and have some experience with counseling and scientific research.

Searching for UX principles for designing an Arabic language website

Hi,
I'm sat here in Doha [Qatar] in the middle of a week of user-testing an English/Arabic travel website. One concern for our design approach is to not just "flip the text RTL" for the Arabic translation. We'd really like to actually do something meaningful for the Arabic version [yes, its early in the project and our hopes flourish].

Primarily I'm trying to find UX principles for designing an Arabic language website. From both Western and Arabic-based UX practitioners. Articles, thoughts and examples on designing Arabic language websites.

Next & previous button order

As discussed by LukeW in Web Form Design, it's best to have the primary
action of a form be the first button that the user sees. For left-to-right
languages this means having the primary action on the left and any secondary
actions on the right (see A in this illustration
http://www.flickr.com/photos/rosenfeldmedia/2366430953/ ).

Thoughts on checkbox controls in iOS7 Apps

As there is no checkbox control in iOS, it always become a bit of an issue on how to mimic that functionality in an app or in a mobile site. The Apple HIG is strangely silent on the issue, other than offering up a segmented control that will only accept a single choice. That's fine for a radio group, but doesn't work for something where you want someone to check a box before continuing, like accepting terms and conditions.

Hi all,
For once - a non-snarky Will post. As of this week, I have made the

machine, new everything including new way of doing wireframing and
sitemapping), I am on the hunt for all site mapping and wireframing
stencils.
